SVA is pleased to announce its first sound design program for graphic, motion and interactive designers.
Now that design is integrated with motion, time and space, it is more essential than ever before for designers to know how to create or where to access all types of sound - from music to sound effects to iconic beats - to bring their designs to life with as much skill and creativity as typography and layout. New software puts unmatched tools in designers - hands to add audio production to their work without hiring or collaborating with musicians. The 21st century has ushered in an age of autonomy for artists and designers and this program will introduce students to the tools and skills necessary to excel in this changing creative landscape.
